rHILADELPIIIA , Jan. 10. Janice Ma-
Kiilro of thin city , Jeremiah Hond of New
York and Charles W. Allen of Stamford ,
Conn. , have Just reached this city , after a
thrilling experience In Cuba. In the course
of which William Harry of New York , who
had accompanied them , was shot and killed
by Spaniards ,
On the 10th of last September the trio
mentioned , In company with Harry , started
for Cuba to Join the forces of the belliger
ents , and arrived In Havana September 21.
Hero they fell In with Josef Ruiz , a Cuban
patriot , who volunteered to guide the quar
tet to the retreat occupied by the Cuban
commanders. They headed for the Plnar
del Itlo district and when near Marlel , In
the Ouanajay district , were surprised by
n body of about fifty Spaniards. They were
taken prisoners , searched and their captors ,
on finding papers confirming suspicions on
Ruiz , held a consultation and decided to
kill all the prisoners The conversation
was carried on In Spanish , but Ruiz Inter
preted their rcmaiks for his American
friends. Recognizing the desperate situa
tion In which they had placed themselves ,
the quintet decided to risk theli lives In
n vigorous effort to escape , rather than to
wait and 1m shot.
Magulro rolled over to Rtil ? and the young
Cuban used his teeth with such success
that ho soon hud MoguIre'H hands tut
through Mogulrc then took a penknife
and liberated his companions. It waa dark ,
but the moon shed light sufficient to Il
luminate the ground for some distance
With a rush the five men ran to the spol
whcro they knew wore some machetes and
Kims. They armed themselves , each with
a machete , revolver and bells full ot am
munition As they attempted to get away
the Spaniards pursued , firing a deadly volley
after their escaping prisoners Harry fell ,
idiot through the heart , at the first fire ,
and Hand's right aim was perfoiatcd by a
ball. The surviving four succeeded In out
distancing their pursuers They made
every effort to get back and recover Harry's
body , however , but were unsuccessful and
worn compelled to mnko their way further
Into the mountainous regions of Plnar del
Rio , and after a tortuous and wearisome
Journey , they arrived In the region of San
A few davs aftcrvards tl'oy were reiap
lured bv n band cf SpanUh patrollc's. Their
hnnds were tied behind their biks and
they were compelled 1o march for a dishinci
cf over ton mica , whin they were thrown
Into .1 prlion the next day they were foiced
to march again until la to In the afternoon ,
when they wcro put Into another prison , Mid
si they wore marched from prison to prison
until Havana was reached Hero they wcro
thrown into a well guarded prison , whsie
they wcro separated.
On December 23 the three Americans were
brought bcfoio some commanding officer ,
vhoso name they did not learn , but It Is
presumed by them that It was General Woy-
lor. They wcro told that Ruiz , the young
Cuban , had committed milclde by Rhootlnii
lilmsulf with a revolver , which ho had
snatched from ono cf the guards The three
friends Bald nothing , but they discredits
the Eiilctdo story and were llrml > convinced

Tim trio of Americans were ottered their
liberty and passage homo If they nlgncd c

Wo nro to bo congratulated upon the

power In the United States senate and
liivo four times as many congressmen us
We united with the silver forces In
their campaign not because \vo bellcvu free
coinageof silver Is the solution of the

PJCRHE. S. I ) . , Jan. 10. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Thcro has been a great deal of
quiet discussion among the legislative men
hero today on measures already before them
and lilccly to come up In the near future.
The probabilities favor reports by the com
mittees tomorrow on the Palmer railroad
bill and the capital removal resolution , both
reports being that the measures do pass.
The Palmer bill will probably go through.
There will bo stroni ; efforts made to secure
minor amendments , although any efforts at
amendment will bo killed. It looks now as
If the capital resolution will bo killed , but
It may get through by a narrow majority
In the senate.
At the republican caucus last night an
effort was made to set a date for a senatorial
rial caucus , but It was voted down It Is
not Improbable though , that a meeting will
bo called for tomorrow night for the pur
pose of setting a date for the caucus.
It Is reported that Governor Leo has re
fused a request to submit to the supreme
court the question of the constitutionality
of the repeal of the piohlbltory amendment ,
but has agreed to submit to that body the
question of the status of the present law
slnco the repeal of the constitutional pro
vision which stood back of It.
The populists are having trouble over the
question of the distribution of patronage ,
and an effort at a caucus last night to har
monize matters failed A number of bills
have been already Introduced to make now
appointive places and others will follow.

BY REASON OF THEIR YEARS

HllloH. | ,
WASHINGTON , Jan. 10. ( Special. ) 1m
portant changes will occur both In the army
and the navy this year through the opera
tlon of the compulsory retirement laws
Thcro will be stars galore to ills
tribute , taking together staff am
line. In Ices than three months Majo
General Huger , the second highest officer
on the active * list , will complete his Glth
year , and so bo retired for age. Tallowing
the precedent which of late years has given
the Department of the Best to the office
next In rank to the ono commanding the
crmy , It may be found that , unless he prc
fe-rs sonic other , General Mcriltt will be
transferred to that department , with head
quarters at Governor's Island , from his
present command , the Department of the
Missouri , with headquarters at Chicago.
Hut who will succeed General linger as
major general ? The ranking1 ofllccr Is Gen
cral John R. Hrootic , who not only ha the
advantage Of being the senior In his grade
but has a fine war record , having woi
brevets during the civil war , while he am
Forsytb are the only two brigadier generals
on the active list who have received com
missions for specific distinguished services
those of General Hrooko being rendered a
the Old Wilderness and Spottsylvanla.
Next to General Brooke In rank stands
Hrlgadlcr General Frank Wheaton , who olao
has a fine war record , nnd list of brevctR
for service , but Is handicapped by the fact
that his own retirement occurs on May
S next , op only about five weeks after that
of General linger. It Is within the limits
of possibility that for this very reason he
might receive the double star , In order
to allow him to retire with the rank and
pay of a major general. But while pro
motion for such a purpose has sometimes
occurred In the czse of colonels , so that
they may become general officers , the case
may bo regaided as different with officers
who already wear the star.
Follow III ? General Wheaton comes Gen
eral 12. S OtU , an accomplished officer
whose retirement , like General Brooke's
docs not occur until the year lOOi. Then
comrs General Forayth , well known as an
officer of Sheridan's staff during the civi
war , who retires In August , 1SOS , while th"
list Is wound up by Generals 7 R Llllss
and J R Copplngcr. The presumption Is
that General Drookc will carry off the
COLONKLS WILL GO UP
Two colonels will receive promotions on
account of these retirements of Generals
Rugrr nnd Wheaton. There the difficulty
of forecasting a choice Is greater. The
senior Is Colonel Shatter. First Infantry , who
has commanded that regiment nearly eight
een years , but has been repeatedly passed
over In the awards of the star. He remains
on the actlvo list until 1S99 Follow Ing him
are Colonel II. C. Mcrrlnm , Seventh Infantry ;
ColonclT ! . Anderson , Fourteenth ; Colonel
n. 1-VTownsend. Twelfth : Colonel R R. A.
Crofton , Fifteenth ; then Colonel J. F. Wade ,
Fifth cavalry ; Colonel O. C. Compton ,
Fourth ; Colonel J. 1C. Mlzner , Tenth ; then
Colonel C. G. Hartlett , Ninth Infantry , and
Colonel M A. Cochran , Sixth. Of these the
only officer retiring this year Is Colonel
Townsend. who leaves the actlvo list July H.
Turning to the staff , the first high officer
to go Is General Morgan , the head of the
subsistence department , who retires on the
18th of this month The ranking officer
under him Is Colonel T C Sullivan , a West
Pointer , who served In the artillery from
IBfiG to the civil war , and was then trans
ferred to the subsistence department The
only handicap In his case Is his awn retire
ment next November , nnd tills Is thoaght
by his friends to be not likely to Interfere
with him Colonel W II Bell , who follows ,
retires less than three months after Colonel
Sullivan. Next In rank ore Lieutenant
Colonels S T dishing nnd W A nidcrklti ,
both West Point graduates , nnd both re
tiring In 1903.
Later In the year como the retirements
of General W P Crulghlll , chief of en
gineers , on July 1 , and Adjutant General G.
D Ruggles on September 11. The probabili
ties as to their successors can better be de
termined after the now president is Inau
gurated , nnd a new secretary of war has
como Into power.
In the navy three very distinguished flag
officers will bo lost lo the actlvo list. Hear
Admlials Walker In March , Ramsay In
April and Brown In June. Commodore
Pliythlan will bo retired In July and Commo
dore Wallace still later In the year. These
retirements will causa n considerable shiftIng -
Ing in actlvo commands.
The matter of supplying a first-class arm
to the mllltla of the country Is likely to be
Ecttlcd favorably by the present congress.
The house committee on military affairs has
reported favorably the bill of the senate ,
which was passed lust March by that body ,
authorizing the secretary of war to Issue
Springfield rifles to the states and terri
tories for the use of the national guard.
The Infantry force of the organized mllltla
of the country Is 93,210 men These nre
armed with Springfield rifles of various mod
els , from 1S73 to 18S1 , calibers .CO nnd 15.
They hnve also Remingtons , Spencers , Win
chesters and other models. The larger pro-
poitlons of the arms , however , are Spring-
fields , many of which are In bad condition ,
especially those of old models. There lies
been a continuous demand from the states
for permission to turn In the old rifles nnd
receive In exchange therefor the modern
Springfield arm , caliber .45. While the ques
tion of a now magazine arm forJhc regu
lar army was In suspense the WaC.depart-
mcnt was unwilling to Issue these weapons
except BO far as they wcio called for uhder
each state's share of the annual appropria
tion of $100,000. Now the new Krag-Jorgen-
scn magazine rifle is being furnished to the
regular army , which will bo entirely sup
plied with this weapon shortly. This will
Involve the return of more than 20,000
Springfield rifles , nearly all In serviceable
condition. As a considerable proportion of
the National Guard have serviceable Spring-
fields It Is estimated that not moro than
60,000 of that arm would bo required to sup
ply the guard , and that number could bo
readily furnished by tin ) government when
the regular army Is fully supplied with the
The Springfield rifle , caliber . -15 Is a ulnglo-
shct breech-loader , has a heavy bullet which
cannot talio so Mat a trajectory nor so long a
range as the new rifle of caliber1 .30 , but It
Is a very serviceable weapon , easily and
quickly loaded , and can bo fired very rapidly.
The manufacture of the Krag-Jorgcnscn
magazine rlflo will proceed as lapldly as the
appropriations will permit. In the mean
time it would bo good policy that the super
seded Springfield should be Issued to the Na
tional Guard In accordance with their wishes
and repealed requests , The National Guaid
In most of the states ls In excellent condi
tion , and bag reached a high state of per
fection In drill and discipline. In case of
emergency Us ranks could bu quickly re
cruited from men who have had former con
nection with It to a total of lf.0,000 , and In
a short tlmo this force would approach a
uniform standard of efficiency nnd power.

WASHINGTON , Jan. 10 The fate of the
Paclllc mllioad funding bill , which was dc-
bated three days In the house last week ,
will bo decided tomorrow , when the measure ,
with the pending amendments , will come tea
a vote under the special order under which
the house Is proceeding ,
The bill involves the settlement ot the
$11 ,000,000 of 'tnbtdtcdncss of the Union
Pacific and Central Pacific on the basis of
an extension of over eighty yearn at 2 per
cent , with an annual extinguishment pay
ment on the principal at the rate of $365.000
for the first ten years ; $550,000 for the second
end ten years , nnd $7CO,000 for the remain
ing years. It Involves as the alternative ot
Us defeat the probable Immediate fore
closure of the government's lien and the
sale of the property.
U Is the culmination at the struggle which
has gene on In congress for a dozen yearn
to secure some sort of an adjustment of the
Pacific railroad Indebtedness on the basis
cf an extension , as It baa been nppaicnt for
a long pctiod that the- roads would default
when the bonds matured The- Interests nt
stake are gigantic and the friends of the bill
nro straining every nerve. The opponents
of the measure arc also actlvo and thu re
sult la awaited w.lh Intense lute-rest. Kacli
side tonight claims It will bo victorious to
morrow , lloth sides have made polls ot tlio
members upon which tluy base their claims.
llcforo the tlnal votu In taken on the bill
the Hell and Harrison substitutes , both of
which are pending , will be voted upon The
former provides that If th Union Pacltlo
and Central Pacific will discharge the first
mortgage Indebtedness of } fil 000,000 , so as
to advance the governments Hen to u first
mortgage , thu government will agrco to au
extension of the debt at a low rate of In-
te-ic t. The Harrison substitute provides
fa : the creation of a commission , connlstlng
of the secretary of the treasury , the secre
tary of the Interior and the attorney general ,
for the pcttlcmcnt ot the debt on a basis
fair to the toads and Just to the govern
After the funding bill Is disposed of the
house bill will proceed with the considera
tion of nppioprlatlon bills until Saturday ,
wh'cll will bo given up to eulogies on the
life and chaiacter and public services ot
the late ex-Speaker Crisp The Indian and
military appropriation bills me on the cal
endar , and before they are disposed of the
agricultural bill will be brought on.
The com so of the senate this week will
depend largely upon whether tbo Paclflo
railroads funding bill passes the house and
whether Senator Cameron will call up his
Cuban resolutions Mr. Cameron's friends
expect that ho will be In lib ) neat Monday ,
nnd that when he returns ho will indicate
Ills dcslro as to the icHoIutlons on the Cu
ban question. If hu decides tn prtss the
resolutions there will be a determined ef
fort to aid him In this direction , but In any
event there arc likely to bo a few speeches
on Cuba , Senator Mills has announced his
purpose to address the senate on the ques
tion tomorrow , and It Is understood that
Senator Davis Is preparing a Cuban speech.
The Pottlgrcvv frco homestead bill Is ex
pected to reach a vote Monday or Tuesday ,
and It Is to be followed by thu Pacific rail-
load bill If the latter bill passes the house.
Senator Culloin , who will hava charge ot
the legislative , executive and judicial ap-
uuprlallon bill , said today ho expected to
ic able to repoit that mcaburo by the mid-
lie of the week , and that ho would ask
the senate to consider It as soon as re
